Driving from Tuxedo Park to NYC, perhaps 30 to 45 minutes by car, however you can take the train that is located across the st. from the park.

The Park is a very exclusive area, with gorgeous homes with prices from $700,000 to millions, however it is well woth the money, for that kind of housing. schools are private, taxes are NOT bad, it is a litle paradise. I have been there few times. The last home I show to clients was gorgeous, the owner even sold the furniture, that was a great deal I wish I could had purchased that myself, but "it is what it is"

To see if the commute is manageable for you, consider taking the time and do a test run...

I have clients that are from NYC right now that are looking to buy in Tuxedo Park, and they love the location because it is walking distance to the train and the train ride "in their opinion" is very nice and smooth. It is about an hour- an hour and fifteen minutes. You have to transfer at Secacus, but it is not that bad. Tuxedo Park brings nature and beauty of the Harriman State Park, with just a short ride to the city full of opportunities. Its a great location!

I commuted from Suffern, NY for 14 years to NYC when I worked for AT&T. Tuxedo Park is very close to Suffern, NY and there are many options to go into NYC from Suffern. The NJ Transit has an express railroad train leaving from Suffern or you can leave from Tuxedo where there is a station, too. The express takes about 35 to 40 minutes into Hoboken, NJ and from there you can take the PATH train to NYC, either to lower Manhattan or to midtown. That adds about 20 minutes more to your commute. If you take a bus and there are many bus options, too, you will go into the Port Authority in Manhattan, at 41st Street and 8th Avenue. This will take about 1 hour from Suffern and 1 hour plus from Tuxedo, which is 15 minutes north of Suffern, NY. For car travel, it depends on the time of day. Please let me know what time of day you tend to leave the area. Very early or coming home on the late side, will be about 45 minutes to an hour, depending on where in NYC you work. Otherwise, much depends on the traffic but you can expect to add at least 30 minutes at the busiest part of the day. I hope this helps!

Take care,

The bus and train average one hour to NYC. Most residents of tuxedo park do work in the city and have a daily commute. The train is better if you work downtown & the bus is best for midtown. My wife has commuted to the City for the last 5 years. There is something very relaxing at the end of a city day to come through the stone gates of historic Tuxedo Park! I have lived here for 18 years and my Real Estate firm specializes in Tuxedo Park homes.

...sorry so late, but commuting myself years before beeing a realtor, can be tricky.
The best is to dive to suffern train Station and use the Express to Hoboken or Sycacus. By car it really depends what time of the day. You can be stuck at Lincoln tunnel for 1-1.5 hours on Fridays at 6.
No rush hour you're in the City within 45min by car. Regards, Martina

Wow, did you buy a house yet? So many helping hands...I must confess that Anna Brocco, from NASSAU County, was the only one which gave you the right info, without self-promotion and other gimmicks.
There are many ways to get from Tuxedo to NY City, depends on the place you would like to commute to, season and even your personal preferences.
So follow her advice: the days are beautiful, take a ride and check for yourself. Good Luck!

It's a very easy commute, about 45 minutes by Shortline Bus,Metro North or personal transportation.
Naturally, this assumes normal traffic, no delays, accidents etc..
All in all the Tuxedo area is very much sought after for its convenient location,offering beauty and historical significance in Orange County.
if you require further assistance, please call me @:914-805-9053
Good day!

It's not a bad commute...The Port Jervis line of Metro North Railroad stops in Tuxedo. You can take that to Hoboken and change for the Path Train to lower Manhattan or 33rd St, or you can switch at Secacus and head to Penn Station.

Feel free to call me if you have any other questions!
